Prime over the caulk with oil or alkyd primer.

Or cut away the caulk with a razor blade.

Another question

Thanks for the advice, prowallguy. I recently installed an acrylic shower and found myself in the same boat.

Which leads to my question:

Are both of these types of paint safe for acrylic showers?

Hoping to finish priming tonight.
